with 303 electoral votes, florida is still up in the air although the president does have a lead there right now of half of a percentage point. now, it's important to note that obama took nearly every swing state, including colorado, ohio, pennsylvania virginia, and wisconsin. those last three really contributed to his win and to the fact that we were able to call the race relatively early last night. if you remember yesterday, there was speculation that the count could go on for several days in the event of a close race. the popular vote is very close at 50.2% to 48.2, just a difference of two points there but with nearly 100-point spread in the electoral vote, it's really no contest. congressional seats democrats did not gain control of the house, which was to be expected, but they did maintain control of the is that the, picking up seats in indiana and massachusetts, a big win there for elizabeth warren against scott brown. we're still waiting on results from montana and north dakota but departments have the lead right now. the two independents, king from maine and sanders fro
and we are still waiting on an official number from florida. it is obvious the state has not fixed its voting problems. as i'm sure you remember, it was florida 12 years ago causing the legal disaster between vice president al gore and president george bush. the difference this time, no one cares as much. president obama's victory was well secured without florida's 29 electoral votes. but for florida natives this is frustrating and all too familiar. the state's whole voting system is plagued by bad management and dysfunction. it is usually elected officials running the voting process rather than nonpartisan professionals to. make this system more efficient what florida needs now is better access to polling places and more absentee and early voting. >>> it's also affecting the congressional race. g.o.p. representative allen west is now demanding a recount. the election there is still too close to call. west is down just 3,000 votes against his democratic opponent patrick murphy. west is blaming a county supervisor for r
yesterday, if you vote, i will win. that could be a problem particularly in florida and ohio as we reported yesterday. early voting rollbacks meant some people were waiting in line for as long as six hours to finally cast their ballot. so we'll have to see how those polls are today. >> if you need to know how late your polls are open, politico and ap have a good map of state by state closing times. you can check it out on politico's home page. we'll be right back.

the election. he was trying to recreate florida 2000. >> he was. it was a train wreck of what happens when you have a political person as a commentator and a pundit and you can see the conflict of interest playing out on live national television. >> bill: then yesterday he gets on national television well, two days later. yesterday he was back with megyn kelly. listen to his explanation of why romney lost and how obama won. >> he succeeded by suppressing the vote. i know you can't bring yourself to vote for me but i'm going to paint this other guy as simply a rich guy who only cares for himself. they voted for obama by a 9-1 margin. >> bill: first of all that is who mitt romney is. mitt romney has told us himself he only hangs out with people that own nascar teams, nfl teams and have dressage horses. but it's like forcing people to pay a poll tax, or forcing them to have voter id. that's suppressing the vote. telling the truth about mitt romney wasn't suppressing the vote. >> president obama has become the first president in history to win -- >> you keep saying that but
overwhelmingly and when you add florida it was 332 to 206. that ain't close, folks. not only that. he won the popular vote. helex night. no doubt about who won. he won 8 out of 9 of the battle ground states. that was sweet enough. okay? but here is the deal: a lot of people very long lost sight of. the president's margin keeps growing and growing and growing every day it gets bigger and bigger. because there are so many votes that weren't counted on november 6th and as of this morning, there is still like a million and a half uncounted votes out there, which is a amazing. think about it. the election right in the almost a month old. >> yeah. >> still a million and a half votes. many of them like a million votes in new york state. % why? because of hurricane sandy and the presinks they had to use like paper ballots and they haven't been able to count them all. parts of new jersey most of those uncounted votes are up in the -- up in the northeast. so, as they are counting these votes t the president's total gets up and up and up. right now the count is t
